Towneley Park

On Wednesday Caroline, Trev and Charlie along with William and I took a ride over to Towneley Park.

I wanted to take a look at all the Christmas stuff that I knew would be on sale in the park's garden centre..

I really don't need another thing in the line of Christmas decorations but when things are half price it's hard to resist and, big spender that I am, I bought these two lovely little baubles for the tree.

Charlie had great fun in the play area.   He loves these diggers.

The last time we were here in the summer Charlie could hardly reach those controls.

He's grown a lot it would seem and is doing better with them now.  A helping hand from his daddy is always welcome though.

After time in the play area for Charlie we strolled up towards the very imposing Towneley Hall.  Actually it was a bit cold for strolling and the rain had started to come down so hurried, would be a more accurate term to use.

What we needed was shelter from the cold and windy, rainy weather.  Our destination therefore was the converted stable block, above, which is now the cafe.  We enjoyed a hot drink sitting by the window with this lovely view to admire before we once again braved the elements, spent a little more time in the play area and headed back home.

You are so fortunate to have such beautiful places to visit right in your own backyard. Give my 13 year old some sand and he is a happy camper for a while. He can dig and dig and dig. Wishing you a happy new year filled with peace, joy and love. Tammy
